Hey just curious if anyone here is an LPN, but decided to go through with another 2 years of RN school without bridging for one year. What was your reason for doing so? And are you glad you went this... Read More

    Some LVN/LPNs have found it easier to get into a 2 year RN program (aka they are re-ininventing the wheel) than to try to find an LVN to ADN or BSN bridge program. In Calif, few community colleges offer bridge courses; instead you enter as an advanced practice student nurse. There are some private colleges in Calif that for $$,$$$ to $$$,$$$'s they will admit you into to their bridge courses.

    Should you not take the bridge course, you step onto a moving program and you are not prepared for how the program is taught, how things are done, etc. This makes life very, very difficult. One program at Ventura College in Ventura, CA admits LVNs into their program, but LVNs enter at the 2nd semester level and must take 1.5 years of work. Because it is easier to get into the ADN program than the LVN program, some LVNs at Ventura Community College are starting over again with the first semester of the ADN program.

    Should you consider a distant learning in Calif, first check to see what distant learning programs are recognized in Calif. Also, check with the students to see what they think of the program. Distant learning programs are a great asset but they are far more rigorous than a brick-and-motar nursing program.

    Hey its very good to hear lvns are starting over again in some ADN programs from the 1st semester. Feel much better about my decision now, and I am not in any rush whatsoever. Thanks
